Listen: Tusla Says People Who Make Unacceptable Mistakes Will Be Held To Account.

: 06/19/2018 - 17:20

Tusla says people who make unacceptable mistakes will be held to account.

It’s after a report by the health watchdog HIQA found that the Child and Family Agency has to take urgent action to address shortcomings in how it handles child abuse allegations.

HIQA found that 65 children were at potential risk of abuse who hadn’t been given the correct supports.

Tusla has again apologised to Maurice McCabe, whose false abuse allegation sparked the HIQA investigation.

CEO of Tusla, Fred McBride, said people would be found accountable:

The Children’s Minister has acknowledged the report made for some hard reading.

Katherine Zappone says any recommendations will be implemented in full.
